From search engines, algorithms, design, and technology to what it means to be uniquely human, today’s guest weekly inspires me with his email newsletter, Don’t Think About The Future, to think deeply about unexpected topics. Chris Butler is a writer, designer, manager, consultant, and creator at Newfangled. I have had the pleasure of talking with him before on Getting Work To Work, and you’ll find links to those past conversations in the show notes. In this conversation, he dives into some fascinating topics that he is thinking about after four years of political turmoil, technological changes, and the effects of a global pandemic. He also shares insight into two recent essays he wrote: the first about why search engines don’t work and aren’t good and the second about what it means to dream big.
